Civil War Era Confederate Photo

CSS Stonewall (Image: The Atlantic)

Description of photo via The Atlantic website:
The CSS Stonewall was a 1,390-ton ironclad built in Bordeaux, France, for the Confederate Navy in 1864. After she crossed the Atlantic, reaching Havana, Cuba, it was already May, 1865, and the war had ended. Spanish Authorities took possession, soon handing it over to the U.S. government.
